This night, we had a clear sky for the first time. First task : test the AstroWiebel.
First installation of the adaptive optical system on the 62cm Cassegranian telescope:
Finally, the ST8ex camera attached to the tip-tilt system:
And the scope is ready for imaging!
The software controls the system:
And then.... first light:
NGC 7479, barred galaxy in Pegasus. Exposure: 18min, Binning 2x2, no filter. Little deconvolution to reduce effects of bad seeing.
We celebrate the success with this fine Belgium beer...
